Wow, this is stunning. A flooded jungle temple! Would look sick with some little crayfish chillin on the ledges.

I may try to catch your fish if they are big enough

the only reason this tank looks so amazing is because it looks so natural.

It has amazing depth - whatever you are using in the back has a small enough leaf to make it look like it's far away. One day this will be my inspiration to redo my 125!

Thanks for the breakdown! I guessed everything but the fissidens - glad to know I've learned something here! lol

The tank is an excellent lesson in pre-planning and scale. The scale of the various plants and their small leaves paired with the structures and the statue end up making the coffeefolia look like elephant's ears, and the java fern like a young palm tree. I see glimmers (esp. off to the left side) of what look like silhouetted tree trunks. There's so much to learn here for people wanting to make "landscapes" in their tanks!
